Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Mr Babachir Lawal has distanced himself from purported statement by one alleged imposter, Amina Mohammed that he was involved in her scams for which she was paraded by Directorate of State Services (DSS) in Abuja, recently.

Lawal in a statement in Yola, Adamawa State capital yesterday, explained that, the alleged confessional statement by the  suspect (Amina), was  a desperate effort, to shield herself from the consequences  of her actions.

The statement noted that, Lawal  don’t  know the said Amina Mohammed or any of her accomplices much less involved in the activities, she is being accused of committing.

Lawal had also instructed his lawyers to institute appropriate legal action against  Amina and any person(s)  involved  as the matter has  caused him and members of his family  considerable  embarrassment.

“My attention  has been  drawn  to an alleged confessional  statement  made by one Amina Mohammed  who was paraded  together  with several  other persons  recently  by DSS operatives in connection  with some criminal  offences.

“The said suspect in a desperate effort to shield herself from the consequences  of her actions mentioned my name and that of the First  Lady,  Mrs.  Aisha Buhari as co-conspirators in the alleged crimes.

“I do not  know and have never had any dealings whatsoever  with the said Amina Mohammed or any of her partners in crime.  I also do not know one Mariam said to be a sister to Mrs.  Buhari or anyone called Chicason whom she also mentioned.”

“I have never been interested in property business and have no dealings with the sale of federal government properties anywhere in Nigeria.

“The said publication  has caused me and members of my family  considerable  embarrassment  as intended by the said Amina and her sponsors.

“I have instructed my lawyers on the matter to in due course institute appropriate  legal action against  Amina and any persons  involved  if the offending statement is not publicly  retracted  with an apology.”

He urge the general public  to be rest assured  that, the said statement  is malicious  and false  and to discountenance same.
